Merry Christmas from Drain Doctor!

Merry Christmas and a very happy New Year from the entire Drain Doctor team! We’ve had a great year working with clients across Chester, North Wales and Wirral, taking care of everything from CCTV drain surveys and rainwater harvesting system, to blocked drains and plumbing emergencies. After all that hard work, we can’t wait to sit down to a great big turkey, all the trimmings and maybe even a plum(b) pudding for dessert…(sorry)…

We’re Here to Fix Christmas Catastrophes

But don’t worry, we won’t all be putting our feet up over Christmas. We know that Christmas is a time when your house is likely to be full of guests and busier than usual – and that’s precisely when Murphy’s Law comes into play. Sometimes everything which can go wrong, does go wrong at Christmas, which is why we’ve made sure that we have plenty of plumbers ready to come to your aid – even on Christmas Day! Our emergency plumbing services will be available across Chester, North Wales and Wirral 24/7 throughout the festive season. We can’t help you if Santa gets stuck in the chimney, but if your plumbing goes haywire, we’re here to help.

Christmas Plumbing Tips

There are a few things you can do to reduce the risk of plumbing problems over the festive period.

Here are our top tips to help you out:

  • Don’t tip fat down the sink

All of those lovely juices from your Christmas turkey and gravy may be delicious, but they’re also a recipe for drain blockage. Instead of tipping fat down the sink, tip it into a tub, allowing it to solidify before putting it in the bin.

  • Use a strainer

Your sink is likely to get a whole lot more action at Christmas time. To stop remnants clogging up your systems, always use a sink strainer.

  • Space out showers

Extra guests taking showers can take its toll on your plumbing. Make sure everyone under your roof leaves 15 minutes between each shower to let your plumbing recover.

All the precautions in the world won’t always save you from festive plumbing woe, but if the worst happens, don’t worry! We’re here to help. Our 24/7 emergency plumbers will be with you in a jiffy to sort everything out. You should probably offer them a mince pie though! Need plumbing help? Contact us now!
